OBJECTIVE Hypofibrinolysis promotes atherosclerosis progression and recurrent ischemic events in premature coronary artery disease. We investigated the role of fibrin physical properties in this particular setting. METHODS AND RESULTS Biomarkers of recurrent thrombosis and premature coronary artery disease (CAD) were measured in 33 young post-myocardial(More)
OBJECTIVES The effect of ionic low osmolar contrast media (ICM) and nonionic iso-osmolar CM (NICM) on acute thrombotic complications of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is subject to controversies possibly related to a potential interaction with anticoagulation regimens. We sought to compare physical and morphological properties of fibrin clots made(More)
Coronary arteries are the most frequent location of atherosclerosis. Coronary artery disease is the first cause of death related to atherothrombosis. In addition, patients with a prior history of acute coronary syndromes exhibit a 10% annual risk of recurrence. Although there seems to be a close correlation between the extension of CAD and the severity of(More)
AIMS Latent heart failure at rest can be observed in a number of patients upon exercise. Considering left atrial (LA) remodelling as the reflection of the cumulative effects of the LV filling pressure (FP) over time, our aim was to investigate whether the LA volume would predict abnormal exercise LVFP. METHODS AND RESULTS Ninety patients (58.6 ± 10.8(More)
AIMS OF THE STUDY To assess mortality in people > or =75 years of age 6 months after myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock and treated by angioplasty with complete revascularisation and optimal anti-thrombotic treatment; to compare results to those of younger patients with or without shock and to analyse predictive factors for death.
